Breitbart, Liberal Activist Cooperated On GOP Primary Disruptions: Report

Say it ain't so, Breitbart! I had expected so much better from you and do not like the thought of you as a conservative CNN or any outlet with the letters "NBC" in the name.  TD

. . . "Aaron Black teamed with the pro-Donald Trump outlet by alerting them to stunts, sharing raw video footage and orchestrating coverage, Politico reported on Monday.
“ 'He worked directly with Breitbart’s political team on the ground in the primary states to sabotage [Sens.] Marco Rubio [R-Fla.] and Ted Cruz [R-Texas], and elect Trump as nominee of the [Republican] party,” a source with direct knowledge of the arrangement told Politico.
“ '[Black] was coordinating with [Breitbart’s] top staff to rabble rouse against Rubio at rallies,” citing various disruptions during the former White House hopeful’s events." . . .

"Why would Black, a committed Democrat, work with a supposedly conservative publication to affect Republican primary results?

As hacked WikiLeaks emails from the Clinton campaign recently revealed, the Clinton campaign feared going up against Rubio in the general election. . .
PJ Media covers this story here: Breitbart Worked with Democrat Operative to Sabotage GOP Primary  "Andrew Breitbart, often described as a "happy warrior" for the conservative cause, now spins in his grave. The website he founded, which still bears his name, has been corrupted into a tool of anti-governing insurgency. Its mission: destroy the Republican Party by any means necessary.

"This much has appeared obvious to many for months, but has now been greatly substantiated. Breitbart.com was willing to go to any length to undermine the party, even colluding with a clandestine Democrat operative whose goals aligned with their own. "From Politico:" . . .

Breitbart's response  "Politico’s Hadas Gold and the Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly severely misrepresented a series of events during the Republican primaries in an attempt to attack the Breitbart News Network, Breitbart News can reveal." . . .
The idea that Black “coordinated” Breitbart News coverage is a blatant misrepresentation of what happened. Black did on occasion—as he and any other effective organizer in politics does with everyone in media—tell Breitbart News about planned events he had coming up and different newsworthy actions he planned to take. Sometimes, when editors and reporters here deemed them newsworthy, Breitbart News would cover them. Other times not. For the reporters and editors at Politico who don’t understand, that is what is called journalism.
